CCTV Chimney Surveying
Rod mounted cameras can be inserted into chimney openings to enable experienced Tewkesbury chimney sweeps to survey chimney cavities and flues and carry out inspections. A monitor in the room shows the chimney sweep the images viewed by the camera so they can locate obstructions that could cause fumes to be returned into the room or result in chimney fires. DVD recordings can often be provided if required for insurance purposes, or if structural repairs are required, a builder can be contacted to complete the repair work.
Chimney Sweeping Companies
Getting your chimney swept is an important part of chimney maintenance, especially if burning wood because of the soot and tar that can accumulate inside the chimney flue Otherwise dangerous emissions could come into your rooms such as carbon monoxide, or chimney fires could be caused, putting your home or family at risk. Tewkesbury chimney sweeping at both commercial and domestic premises is done using bristle brushes made from polypropylene or PVC on flexible rods or with industrial strength vacuum cleaners with fine filters.
Issues That May Be Experienced With Chimneys
A number of problems with the chimney in a domestic property or at commercial premises can be solved with the services of a Tewkesbury chimney sweeping specialist. Excessive amounts of soot being caused when fuel is burnt, hot walls in the room or on walls in rooms above or mortar falling from within the flue are three major problems you could encounter. Carbon monoxide poisoning and chimney fires are two significant risks associated with having an open fire, because waste gases cannot escape properly around a blockage, and if a fire occurs in a chimney, especially houses with floor joists built into chimney stacks, the whole house could be put in danger.
